Sointula - Lot A, 685-1st Street

Sointula - Lot A, 685-1st Street

This is a rare opportunity to own a commercial zoned, semi-oceanfront property in addition to a commercial foreshore tenure across the street, in the quaint, coastal village of Sointula.

The property and foreshore are located on the west end of town across from the primary marina facilities. As a result, the foreshore location already has excellent protection thanks to existing dock facilities and a substantial breakwater.

There is a historic boat shed/workshop approx. 40ft x 50ft situated along the shoreline of the foreshore tenure. This building has power connected, water and sewer are available at the road.

The property fronts both 1st Ave and Alert Avenue and has a primarily level topography which will complement the ease of development. The upland property is 1.29 acres and only steps away from the marina. It has commercial marine zoning, which only a select few properties in Sointula have.

As the property allows for commercial, marine commercial, residential or multi-residential use, development opportunities are diverse and could include marine commercial uses such as marine ways, boat repairs, supplies and manufacturing and seafood sales, general commercial applications such as retail or service outlets, single family residential use or multi-residential development.

The property is in the Sointula community water supply and sewer service areas.

Malcolm Island and the town of Sointula offer a picturesque west coast lifestyle. Sointula was originally founded by Finnish immigrants in the early 1900s looking for a better way of life, and that history is still reflected in the town. It has also been an active fishing centre in the region. The community of approx. 800 offers most basic services as well as shopping, restaurants and recreational opportunities.

Accessed by ferry from Port McNeill on Vancouver Island, Sointula has shopping, fuel services, private and public docks, a library and a medical clinic among other amenities. Whale watchers and outdoor enthusiasts favour Malcolm Island for its whale rubbing beaches and hiking trails. Malcolm Island sits at the junction of Queen Charlotte Strait, Broughton Strait and Johnstone Strait off the northern end of Vancouver Island. The region is renowned for whale watching as well as excellent fishing and kayaking/boating.

This area of the British Columbia coast offers a multitude of activities. For those who love to fish and harvest seafood it is plentiful in all respects. The natural beauty and abundance of marine and other wildlife provide endless activity for nature lovers. The region is home to a northern population of resident killer whales (Orcas), and other marine mammals including dolphins, harbour porpoise, porpoise, seals, and wintering sea lions. Other wildlife in the area includes deer, bears, shorebirds, seabirds, loons, and bald eagles. Vast numbers of salmon migrate through these waters providing excellent salmon fishing.
